  • Methi seeds - 1/2 cup
  • Tamarind paste - 1 small cup
  • Tamarind - 1 small piece
  • Til (sesame seeds) - 1 tbsp
  • Fresh Coconut (grated) - A handful
  • Turmeric powder - 2 tbsp
  • Channa (white, split) - 2 tbsp (for chutneys)
  • Red Chilli - 4-5
  • Jaggery - small piece

  • How to Make Methi Goju:

    1. Roast the methi seeds in a pan on low flame for 5 mins (don't let the seeds turn black).
    2. Grind the seeds (not too finely) and keep aside.
    3. Grind the til, red chilli, tamarind, jaggery, coconut and channa into a fine paste using a little water.
    4. Pour the powdered methi in a vessel, add a cup water and let it cook.
    5. Keep adding water as methi needs a lot of water to cook.
    6. After some time, add salt, turmeric, tamarind paste and continue cooking.
    7. After 10 mins, add the til-coconut-jaggery paste and let the mixture boil until it turns thick like chutney.
    8. Add more jaggery or tamarind if it tastes bitter.
    9. Add a tadka of mustard, oil and curry leaves.
    10. Serve hot with rice and ghee or with roti.
